Triennial & Visits

From July 26-29, the North American Baptist Conference of Churches (NAB) held their Triennial in Edmonton, Alberta. Our BC Executive Minister, Bob Krahn, and his wife Dawn, loaded up their truck and brought medical supplies, donated by our BC Churches, to be included in a shipment to two hospitals in Cameroon.  This is one of the projects that the NAB is involved with; working with White Cross to send medical supplies internationally.  There were lots of familiar faces at Triennial and the sessions and times of fellowship were a blessing and encouragement to all who attended.

During the spring and summer Bob had the opportunity to visit several different churches and pastors in our BC Association. He celebrated Canada Day at Sunshine Ridge Baptist Church in Surrey, visited with Phil Johnson at Osoyoos Baptist Church where they serve a Saturday meal to over eight hundred migrant workers during the summer, and ran across the border to visit with Mark Fast at New Hope Bible Fellowship in Oroville, Washington.

God is so good and we praise Him for his many blessings including Andre Deepwell’s 40th Wedding Anniversary, Andy Dietrich’s 25 years at Grace Baptist in Kelowna, Chilliwack’s (MidTown Church) new building, and Trinity Kelowna’s building extension.

 

25 Years of Ministry

We would like to congratulate Andy Dietrich on 25 years of ministry at Grace Baptist Church in Kelowna!

INTO THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Surrey – October 26 & 27, 2018 – REGISTER HERE

pp_insta_speaking_r1

We would like to invite the pastors and church leaders of the BC Association to join our Executive Minister, Bob Krahn, on Oct. 26 – 27, 2018 (Friday – Saturday) for a challenging workshop on reaching our neighbourhoods for Christ.  Forge Canada, NABC and our BC Association have joined together to bring this event to the Metro-Vancouver area.  While the cost is $100 per person for the two day event, NAB and the BC Association will cover the full cost for the first registrant from each BC Association church.  For all other registrants from your church it will only cost you $10 per person (that’s a 90% savings).  This should give you some indication about the high value that we are putting on this seminar.  This is an excellent opportunity to bring your key leaders together as we equip them for mission.  Thank you Cam for your generosity to our Association pastors and leaders.

Some of your leaders will be working during the day on Friday but I would encourage you to have them join you for the Friday night and Saturday sessions.

Registration:

Please REGISTER HERE no later than October 19, 2018 for the BC Association subsidized rates.

Location: Southside Community Church – 12642 100th avenue, Surrey

Schedule:

Day 1 (Friday, October 26) runs from 1:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

Day 2 (Saturday, October 27) runs from 9:00am to 4:00 pm.

  • Refreshments and snacks will be provided throughout the event.
  • Day 1 – dinner is on your own but is meant to be a shared meal with those you meet at the event at a restaurant in the neighbourhood.
  • Day 2 – lunch will be catered.
